Re: The Official 2008 Presidential Election Thread
I agree with Nic. I do think that's the role of our president. But NOT if that president is going to infringe on our civil liberties in the process. With all amounts of anti-war and anti-weapon that Obama is, it's not far off to see him taking away our 2nd amendment.
I'm Repub. My personal belief is that this nation needs a restart. A clean wipe of legislation. We've learned a lot since 1776 and we need to impliment that in a clear set of rules, rights and legislations not the current bullshit we have. There should be greater definitions as to what a president can do legally, greater definitions as to what congress and the senate HAVE to do (like not being out while VOTING is going on...dumbshits), and most of all what the people should and can do when their government is stepping out of place. The emphasis of the US was for the people by the people. Well OBVIOUSLY the people aren't getting what they want. Even I as a Republican am not happy with ALL of the things that President Bush has done. But what the hell can we do about it? Vote for some shmuck who has the experience of a Jnr. Senator and a Community Organizer? Or vote for some Geezer who is about to croak and would prefer to bailout the dumbass banks then let them fail and show the country what we're about? That's all we can do; EXCEPT march on Washington in a mad mob status. That's our options, as I see it. In the mean time I'll give my support to the man who keeps guns in my house and allows me to carry them, within sense, on the streets. Take away my weapons and we'll have problems.
